The View's location on the side of a mountain is fantastic, and as the name suggests, the vistas are truly spectacular. The View is located at 1,400 metres above sea level, and is reached by driving through 8 kms of fairly bumpy winding road from Al Hamra to Hail Al Shas. Each room has its own terrace above the rocky valley landscape below.
The view was the first Eco Luxe retreat in Oman. Its 30 rooms (most individual cabins) are located in the hills above the town of Al Hamra. It has a fantastic pool overlooking the mountains and makes for a perfect spot to watch the sun go down in quite a dramatic fashion. Activities in the local area include trekking and mountain biking into the surrounding hills and mountains or plenty of local cultural excursions to the old villages of Al Hamra and the famous fort of Bahla, or day trips to the beautiful wadi of Tanuf and the towering peaks of Jebel Shams.
